You may recall that back in December I posted here about a Neo-Victorian event that I attended. In that particular entry
I expressed my hope that the get together signified a new beginning for Goth gatherings. Well, today I'm happy to report that a new event is looming on the horizon and I'm totally excited.
Darkness Resurrected is being promoted as "the current dark dance night for Fayetteville, Arkansas Goth, Industrial, EBM" and "Darkwave." It's set to take place on Saturday, May 23, which is still two months away, but the excitement is already building. If I'm not mistaken, this will be the first local event that will be truly Goth in at least three years. Even better for me is the fact that the venue hosting the gathering is less than a ten-minute walk from where I live. Excellent!
The promoter has also queried interested folks on Facebook about bands they would like to see coming here. Of course, the first group that came to my mind was Demona Mortiss, which is actually more of a metal band. Still, they're Goths who play metal and there are some industrial influences in their music as well. Even if it's not my band pick that gets invited here, the promoter's question to us tells me that more interesting gatherings may be coming up.
To say that I'm jazzed about all of this would be an understatement; and I'm hoping that lots of folks will show up for this resurrection of dark dance nights.
